FileWriteFromArray Help

2 posts in this topic

Little help understanding why and how to correct this issue please.    Here is my code:

$sFilePath = ("C:\Temp\test.txt")
$sFile = FileRead($sFilePath)

;-----Pull Data from file----  Data is two sets of addresses Name1  and Name2
$aResults = StringRegExp($sFile, "(?i)(Name1.*\R.*\R.*\R.*)\R|(?i)(Name2.*\R.*\R.*\R.*)\R", 3)

; Some blank lines get pulled --  This deletes blank lines
while 1
    $newvar = _ArraySearch($aResults, "", 0, 0, 0, false); Search for null lines
    if @error = 6 Then; no more matches found
        ExitLoop
    Else
        _ArrayDelete($aResults, $newvar);Delete current full line
    EndIf
wend

; This takes the two sets of addresses and puts them on one line So each line starts with Name1
Local $aFinalResults[UBound($aResults)]

For $i = 0 to UBound($aResults) -1
   $aFinalResults[$i] = $aResults[$i] & " " & $aResults[$i+1]
   $i = $i+1
Next

For $i = UBound($aFinalResults) -1 To 0 Step -1
   If $aFinalResults[$i] = "" Then
       _ArrayDelete($aFinalResults, $i)
   EndIf
Next

_ArrayDisplay($aFinalResults)

_FileWriteFromArray("C:\Temp\temp.txt", $aFinalResults)

The ArrayDisplay is displaying the data exactly how I want it to be.  Name1 and Name2 addresses on a single line.  So each line in the ArrayDisplay looks like this:

Name1 street city state Name2 street city state

But once I do the FileWriteFromArray the temp.txt file looks like this:

Name1

street

city state  Name2

street

city state

How do I get the FileWriteFromArray to  write how the ArrayDisplay is showing the data?

Thank you for any help

Use the $sDelimiter parameter for the function to make sure it writes it all on one line per row of the array. In your case you'd probably want to use either a space or a tab character to do it.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
